Avatar n tn In the event that his symptoms are indicative of a disorder of attention, you should arrange an evaluation with a child psychiatrist. Now, by nature six-year-olds are not famous for their sustained attention.

If you do still have concerns after more research, I would look for a different doctor. Probably a pediatric psychiatrist or psychologist. Hope this helps. Please feel free to post if you have any more questions.
Avatar f tn Your daughter is three years of age? ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder. Even though they are both attention disorders, they are quite different. Your daughter is three years old; she is going to be hyper, she is going to have more energy than your whole family combined, just as well as every other three year old out there. I have a three year old of my own which inhibits every behavior you mentioned.

Avatar n tn These symptoms could be signs of mile autism, but they can also indicate Attention Deficit Disorder(ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you continue to see these symptoms regularly I would consult your pediatrician. :) God Bless You.
Avatar f tn Ritalin is used to treat attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and narcolepsy (an uncontrollable desire to sleep). When given for attention deficit disorder, Ritalin should be an integral part of a total treatment program that includes psychological, educational, and social measures. Ritalin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
1472248 tn?1292611095 From the symptoms described this looks to be attention deficit hyperactivity disorder rather than anything related to the previous episode of rolandic seizure. ADHD usually presents in early school years. The child can be either primarily inattentive, impulsive, hyperactive or emotionally unstable. The child often doesn’t seem to listen, is easily distracted, cant sit still and is fidgety, has angry outbursts, social loner, becomes very sensitive to criticism.
Avatar f tn I agree, I would have your pediatrician assess him for ADHD, but I would also consider Sensory Disintegration Disorder. This behavior is not so different from a child who has suffered a trauma or loss (been hurt, loss in the family, parents separated).
Avatar f tn Hello, Your child’s symptoms are suggestive of ADHD(attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder and is characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness and inattention, with or without a component of hyperactivity.Symptoms of ADHD are impulsiveness,inattention, aggression, frequent temper tantrums, and hyperactivity.
Avatar f tn It is important to look for other disorders which may be present; such as, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder) and anxiety disorders. It may be difficult to improve the symptoms of ODD without treating the coexisting disorder." In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley, she states that 33% of the kids with ADHD also have ODD.
Avatar n tn Not following through on an instruction could be due to lack of focus caused by a neurological disorder called Attention Deficit Disorder or an issue with receptive speech components that involve lack of understanding of what is being said to her. I would find another doctor and make sure you check credentials.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed at different times with panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar II, and adult attention deficit disorder. I've never felt that any particular one was totally correct, and so have been researching to find out what is wrong. What are some examples of symptoms in "mild asperger's".I have lived most of my life feeling as if things were not quite right.Thank you.

If we remove the cause of Attention Deficit Disorder, the symptoms will soon abate and no medication will be necessary.
Avatar m tn However, it is often present with varying degree of mental retardation and or autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Hence, a complete evaluation of this is necessary. While noise making could be an attention seeking activity, it may also be a part of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Please discuss with your son’s doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar m tn However, some people have problems learning due to attention deficit disorder. Stimulant medications have been shown to be effective for reducing symptoms of ADHD such as distractability and impulsivity. Sometimes mood and thought disorders interfere with learning as well, and these conditions can also respond to medical interventions. A psychiatrist is the right professional to visit to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for psychotropic medications.
